Greene (20-0), rated No. 3 by the WBA and No. 4 by the WBO, will fight an opponent to be determined in an eight-round, non-title fight.
“It always feels good to fight at home in front of my family, friends and fans,” Greene said. “I’m going to put on a real good show. I’m positioning myself to fight the upper rated junior middleweights in 2009, especially (James) Kirkland. I’d welcome the opportunity to fight John Duddy, who is a nice, classy guy who I respect a lot. To fight him in the big arena at Madison Square Garden would be unbelievable.”
Polish power puncher Pawel “Raging Bull” Wolak (22-1, 15 KOs) faces upset-minded Christian Lloyd Joseph (12-7-3, 5 KOs) in the co-feature. Wolak (22-1, 15 KOs), a graduate of Berkley College of Manhattan with a degree in business, is the Polish International light middleweight champion.
NABO lightweight champion Jorge Luis Teron (22-0-1, 15 KOs), fighting out of the Bronx and rated No. 4 by the WBO, fights Aldo “El Pato” Valtierra (24-10, 13 KOs) in a 10-round bout. Teron is trained by former Olympic gold medalist and world champion Mark Breland.
